Personal Statement


Recovering from the chicken pox which I contracted when I was 29 was a grueling multi-dimensional process. The sequellae of the virus – diagnosed as fibromyalgia – whittled away at my life until there was almost nothing left. Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas and meditation) eventually cured my condition. Acupuncture specifically set into motion a process that connected me with the Qi of Destiny which in turn lead me to become an acupuncturist myself.


Before contracting the chicken pox I was extremely “heady” and approached life from a predominantly left brain perspective. This made me very well-read, but it didn’t make me any happier or healthier. Nor did it lead me to any fantastic level of self-understanding. Today I am someone who believes that the experiential, non-rational, spiritual, right brain world is as valid as all that other stuff.


By practicing TCM I can live my commitment to a more peaceful world and actualize my own true nature as a healer. The world’s pain quotient is increased exponentially by people who feel sick, powerless and confused. Eastern philosophies and healing methods can ease this burden and kindle the fire of enlightenment. I deeply believe that if people live in accord with their true nature, the world will be a much better place. And what more could one ask?”
